meeting with the obama white house today going over what they are very worried about regarding this website. but they do have some time. they don't have a whole lot of time, but they do have some time. the white house has circled that november 30th date on its calendar. i think the entire political world, journalists, politicians, everyone else is going to be able to see if they make that time, if they make it by november 30th, there's not going to be a big problem. if all of the sudden there are problems that come along after november 30th, then i do think that we end up getting to a situation where this becomes a much bigger political problem. >> one of the biggest, most interesting numbers out of the poll for me was that 50% think that we are likely to have another shutdown. i think that number needs a lot of unpacking. who are these folks? are they folks from the far right who want another shutdown, folks from the left who are afraid of another shutdown? are they folks saying they're angry that washington is moving this direction? are they folks who are saying they are numb
details. talk about how the obama white house considered hillary clinton what they did about it. >> sure. this is the end of 2011. president obama's numbers were really bad at that point there. were a handful of his top aides trying to figure out a way forward. how can we be competitive in next year's re-election, win next year's re-election given the political predicament we're in. one of the options they looked at was replacing joe biden with hillary clinton on a ticket in 2012. >> when you say looked at it, polled a focus group? >> two things. the polling and focus groups, asking voters how would you respond, for example, to hillary campaigning with president obama. those kinds of questions. the person advocating for is was chief of staff will ciam bailey. exploring the research. >> did the research focus show? >> it would help but not sufficiently to make that bold of a move. there was an imagine that will benefit to doing it but it wasn't sufficient. what they don't know in this book and what daly wasn't sure op when i talked to him today on the phone is if president obama knew. >>
lawmaker raised the issue on the house floor. >> obama care train wreck continues. in 2009, president obama promised if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. it still promises that on the white house website and on the healthcare.gov website, if and when you can get on that website. >> joining me is that republican congressman andy harris from maryland. he serves on the house appropriations committee, the subcommittee, he's also a physician and member of the doctor's caucus. congressman, thanks for being with us. that promise, the president made, it always seemed impossible and yet he kept saying it over and over again hundreds of times. now we have this documented proof that all along his administration knew that what he was saying was untrue. i want to put it up on the screen. here are their predictions. this is the federal register june 17th 2010. they predicted 45% of big employers will drop health care plans. 40% to 67% of individual plans canceled. total, 93 million americans would lose their health plans. sir, is this evidence that president obama was dishonest in making h
of obama care may be the least of the white house's problems. for years president obama denied that the affordable care act would change health care coverage for millions of americans. in fact it was a key component of the president's sales pitch to the public. >> if you like your health care plan you keep your health care plan. these folks need to stop scaring everybody. nobody will force you to leave your health care plan. i don't want government bureaucrats meddling in your health care. your employer provides you health insurance on the job, nobody is talking about messing with that. if you're one of the more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. >> but now an nbc news report finds the opposite happens to be true. buried in a document from 2010 of obama care regulations, lisa myers discovered the white house officials were aware between 40 and 67% of individuals would not be able to keep their policies. yesterday white house press secretary jay carney tried to clarify the law and those past remarks from the preside

, so said paul ryan in 2002 when his party controlled the white house. but when president obama thought maybe a stimulus would be a good idea, because we were facing the worst downturn since the great depression, somebody had changed paul ryan's channel. >> we can do better than this. this bill, this economic stimulus package is unworthy of our new president's signature. this is just a long spending wish list from every spending interest group that's out there. if you're going to go out and borrow $825,000 -- >> so, recraft it for me, congressman ryan. >> this is not going to work, and that's the concern. >> this stimulus thing is not going to work. who would ever think that a stimulus bill would work? paul ryan's change of heart would have been embarrassing on its own, but it got worse when he was forced to admit that his office had requested money from the 2009 stimulus bill, even though he said that they had not. and even though he said the whole thing wouldn't work. if it wouldn't work, then why did you want some to take home with you? that kind of thing that's happened often enough
